OTTAWA FOOD BANK

Food Aid BBQ

A BBQ FOR YOU. FOOD FOR THOSE IN NEED.

Since meat is so expensive, it can be difficult for struggling families to get enough of it in their diets. With our Food Aid program, we raise money to buy cows that we can process locally, freeze, and distribute to our member agencies.

To raise money for our Food Aid program, we hold an annual BBQ. After all, what better way to raise money for a program that supplies beef to those in need than by selling burgers from The Works?

In 2011, our Ottawa Food Aid BBQ and broadcast on CFRA raised $$115, 952 dollars to provide ground beef to families in need. Since its inception in 2005, Food Aid has purchased 1,724 cows and distributed 744,768 pounds of ground beef.

In 2012 we were able to raise even more money than 2011 with a record-breaking $167, 407! Check out 2012′s event.
